I cannot get guest mode to work on my Chromecast.
I set it up using my iPhone and it casts correctly from it. Guest mode is switched on. I also have every app granted access to my local network.
Then when I try to cast from my iPad - which has both mobile data and wifi switched on, but is not connected to my wifi network (as I asked it to forget the network) - I get no option to connect to guest mode.
Can anyone tell me what I've missed? Thank you
Thanks for posting. Check the steps listed below to see how you can connect to Guest mode:
For more detailed info about Guest mode, please visit this support website article.
Thanks for getting back to us. What's the iOS version of your iPad? Please reboot your Chromecast and reinstall the Google Home app. If the issue persists, please factory reset your Chromecast.
Yikes! Could you please tell me what type of Chromecast device do you have? Please double check if the local network access is also enabled in your iPad's settings. If it's enabled, please turn it off and back on then reboot your iPad. Also, try the steps below:
Keep me posted.
I'm going to give up and return this now. I can cast fine from a device connected to the same network. But from a device that's not connected (using the ios youtube app) no guest mode shows - all the network settings look fine. All of the support on the Google website focusses on Android devices, which is no help to ios users. Maybe this simply doesnt work with ios apps.
